OTTAWA, Nov. 27, 2018 /CNW/ - Today, the Honourable Carla Qualtrough, Minister of Public Services and Procurement and Accessibility, was in Ottawa to highlight the Fall Economic Statement 2018, which updates Canadians on results already delivered by the Government's investments, and lays out the next steps in the Government's plan to grow the economy by investing in middle class jobs.
In the Fall Economic Statement 2018, the Government of Canada proposes to introduce legislation to implement the prompt payment of contractors and sub-contractors for federal projects on federal lands as well as the adjudication of payment issues.
Ensuring the speed and efficiency of cash flow down the construction supply chain is fundamental to a healthy construction industry. The timely flow of payments within all tiers on such construction projects is necessary so that material and equipment suppliers, sub-contractors, and trades and labour can contribute with confidence to federal government projects.
